Albura: A wooden band made of living cells that surrounds the heartwood and carries water

Alternas, hojas: It is said of the leaves, one on each side, along a stem, but without opposing

Amento: Hanging head composed of small unisexual flowers arranged around a central axis

Anatomia: Structure of a living being

Angiosperma: Plant with flowers, whose seeds are enclosed inside a fruit

Anquilosaurios: Armored ornistiquios dinosaurs

Antera: Sacks at the tip of the stamen where pollen is produced

Anticlinal: Fold with concavity oriented towards the interior of the Earth originated by the action of compressive tectonic forces on sedimentary rocks

Árbol: Woody plants of great size, with a main trunk and a clearly distinguishable cup

Árbol Latifolio: Tree with flowers whose seeds have cotyledons

Arcosaurios: Reptiles that includes the current crocodiles, in addition to the already extinct dinosaurs, pterodactyls and tecodónilos

Arenisca: Detritic sedimentary rock from the diagenization of sands

Argilita: Clay with laminar structure

Bioturbación: Removal of sedimentary deposits by living organisms

Bípedo: Walking on two legs

Bipinnadas: Leaves that are divided into leaflets, which in turn are divided into smaller leaflets

Bráctea: Leaf: flake located at the base of a flower or head that often protects the buds

Caduco: Tree that sheds all its leaves, in autumn in the temperate zones and in the tropics at the beginning of the dry season

Cáliz: The outer and protective layer of a floral bud formed by sepals");

Cambium: Layer located between the xylem and the flower that stimulates the development of the trunk, causing it to grow slightly thicker each year

Canchal: Accumulation of blocks at the foot of a ledge from which they have detached

Carnívoro: That feeds on meat

Carnosaurios: Large and strong theropod dinosaurs

Circo glaciar: Basin of glacial erosion in mountain regions, with a semicircular and limited plan, upstream waters, by steep escarpments

Cuarcitas: Siliceous metamorphic rock derived from the transformation of a sandstone made up of quartz grains and siliceous cement. It is very resistant to erosion

Charnela: Element of a fold that corresponds to the sector of maximum concavity in a syncline and maximum convex in an anticline

Derrubio: Detrital product of hillside erosion

Discordancia: Arrangement that presents a sedimentary set when the latest, higher series do not keep parallels with the older, lower series of the substrate previously deformed by tectonics

Dolomia: Sedimentary rock of chemical origin formed by double calcium and magnesium carbonate

Domo: Anticline of equal width and length. Dome

Ensilladura anticlinal: Concave deformation in the longitudinal axis of an anticline

Falla: Tectonic deformation identified as a fracture of the earth's crust with displacements of the affected blocks

Festuca: A genus of herbaceous plants in the grass family

Fosa tectónica: Structural depression coinciding with a sunken block of the earth's crust and delimited by faults

Gelifracción: Rock fragmentation process linked to the alternations of ice/thaw to which the water occupying the pores and the cracks of the same is subjected

Geoenergía: Energy from inside the earth

Glacis: Flat, gently sloping surface that, from the mountainous slopes, connects with the bottom of a valley or depression. They are landforms of regions with a climate of irregular rainfall and strong intensity

Glera: The same as Canchal

Helioenergia: Energy from the sun

Horst: Block of the earth's crust elevated between tectonic trenches and delimited by faults

Karst: In geomorphology, characteristic modeling of rocks that can be attacked by processes of rock dissolution, generally limestone or gypsum.

Karst, elementos: The most significant elements are lapiaces, dolimas or torcas or poljes and galleries or underground rooms

Lengua glaciar: Glacial ice mass emitted from circuses and flowing through a valley

Lutita: Detrital sedimentary rock from diagenization of particles less than 50 microns

Morrena: A form of glacial accumulation, located below the level of permanent snow, consisting of heterometric rocky materials carried by glacial ice

Orogenia: Mountain range formation period (orogen). Orogenic periods last tens of millions of years and exhibit several especially intense pulsations

Periglaciar: Term applied to climates, morphogenetic processes and modeling characterized by the alternation of ice/thaw and its effects

Pizarra: Metamorphic rock with a laminar structure, mainly originated by the transformation of clays subjected to strong pressures and high temperatures

Proceso morfogenético: Mechanisms of erosion, elemental or complex, that directs the modeling of the relief and its evolution

Relieve residual: Relief that due to the resistance of its materials and its important structural volume it persists in protrusion after having escaped to important erosive levels

Ripples: Small ripples caused in the sand by the movement of the waves, the waters of a river or the wind

Saltación: Transport process in which the particles migrate in small jumps. Affects the surface layer of the soil on the slopes

Sinclinal: Fold with convexity facing the interior of the Earth, caused by the action of compressive tectonic forces

Solifluxión: Transportation process in a stream identified with the massive and slow movement of a muddy mass. Characteristic of wet and periglacial media

Suelo poligonal: Characteristic soil of the periglacial domain on flat surfaces, whose materials are arranged forming closed geometric figures

Superficie de erosión: Plain developed on folded or failed structures, originated by erosion processes that have leveled equally resistant and brittle materials

Terraza fluvial: Form of accumulation originated by the activity of a river and located in a valley. It corresponds to old abandoned river beds and highlighted by subsequent erosion



Also Aragon enjoys a diverse and varied Nature where passing by plants, animals, Geology, or landscapes we can arrive at a fantastic bestiary that lives in its monuments.

The information will not be complete without a stroll by its three provinces, with shutdown in some of its spectacular landscapes like Ordesa, the Moncayo, Monegros or by opposition the Ebro.

Also you can dedicarte to the intangible ones: from the legend compilation that also does to universal Aragon.

The pasapues project is an extension of the Aragón project is like that, and tries to collect and relate all possible types of documentary information about Aragon: texts, books, articles, maps, illustrations, photographs, narrations, etc., and proceed to its publication and diffusion.
